We are well into the Summer TV season so here are some recommendations of which network shows to check out right now.
There is no surprise Big Brother is back again for the 16th season. It is one of the long running staple reality shows out there. If you like drama, competition, and just observing interesting people, Big Brother has got you covered. It airs 3 days a week, Wednesday, Thursday, and Sunday. Each week 1 house guest is voted out until there is one left at the end to win the cash prize. This season has added a few changes to make even more competition which adds to the drama. Check it out on CBS or CBS.com.
Master Chef is back with regular home cooks competing against each other on one of Gordon Ramsey's cooking shows. Compared to other shows like Hells Kitchen, this one is a bit more tame but in a good way. Also the cooks tend to be more likeable. Each week they compete against each other to make the best dishes. There is a lot of drama as the cooks are put through different challenges that test their ability to work under pressure in different situations and with different ingredients. Check out Master Chef Mondays on Fox.
American Ninja Warrior
The athletic skills competition show is underway with a new season of competitors battling the obstacle courses each week in order to become the next American Ninja Warrior. This season has a lot of veterans as well as new athletes that have performed quite well. This season may be known most for the women who have been doing better than ever before and have shown that they can compete with the men on the same courses. Check out ANW Mondays on NBC.
NY Med is part of a medical documentary style series that follows real doctors and nurses working in hospitals. Each week different cases are shown as patients are brought in and treated for serious illnesses and injuries. It is a feel good show as most of the patients are helped and turn out ok in the end. It is interesting to watch both the doctors and the patients in these life or death situations. You can see NY Med airing Thursdays on ABC.
